question about you asked burma and the united states and president obama's embrace of their reform efforts and support for it. in no other way that you can imagine is an entry by burma into the international community and what opportunity that it provides economically. that is an important focus of the burmese leadership. the economic prospects and promises of their coming into the international community and supported by the u.s. that is a path that if the north koreans would address the nuclear issue that would be available to them. we have said that from the outset. it is an important example for them to contemplate. it is a regime that continues to be isolated -- a regime that is a complete outlier. it is failing its people economically. there is another path. that example is an important one -- of a country totally isolated for many years, under extreme sanctions from the u.s., making a determination to go a different way. what the positive aspects are for their people and country are manifest and will be very clearly underscored by the president's visit. it is an important example fo
and campaigns to get the electoral votes from your state. how surprised are you by that? >> well, i was very pleased by the result. i was just sorry that it took so long. but to get those 29 electoral votes from florida in president obama's column was a big deal. it was wonderful to have it happen. it felt like that was going to happen toward the end of the campaign. i went to rallies with him in hollywood and orlando and other parts of the state, in tampa, st. petersburg with president clinton. you could feel the passion and the energy on the ground. so the fact that he won it was wonderful. it was a little icing on the cake, like i say, very proud for our president and our florida. >> let's show everybody. the final vote count in florida shows president obama eking out this slim win. 74,000 of vote victory. but it was the second straight time that he carried the state. it has been solidly republican in the past. do you think florida is more blue or purplish nowadays going forward? >> it's sort of a purple-blue, if you will. i think that you're right. in past elections, george bush did very
the affordable health care act commonly called obama care. the governor says alabama will not expand state medicaid programs because the state can't afford it. states have until this friday to announce if they will participate in an exchange program. >>> and democratic congressman jesse jackson junior is out of mayo clinic where he was treated for bipolar depression, despite embroiled in a house ethics investigation for misuse of campaign funds. he won re-election last week, he has been on leave of absence since june. >>> and john mcafee says he is innocent of murder and is on the run from authorities in central america. he is wanted in belize for questioning after his neighbor, a u.s. citizen, was found shot to death last weekend. mcafee left his namesake internet security firm in 1994. >>> and massachusetts police say an er doctor driving drunk and on pills caused this unbelievable crash. it wasn't even 9:00 in the morning when police say the woman behind the wheel hit a delivery truck in a parking lot, ran into a fence twice, sheered a post in two, and then went airborne, crashing into
. you're not going to tell the president of the united states that his cia director is part of an fbi investigation? flawed investigation or not, would this not be something that barack obama would want to know as fast as possible. >> thank you both for now. i'll turn now to somebody who will know probably a few answers to these questions. attorney general eric holder is also caught in the cross-fire on this scandal, facing questions about what he knew and why he didn't inform the president and congress sooner. michael mukazy was a former attorney general and joins me now. welcome. >> good to see you again. before we go down this road i want to observe the day by thanking the people in the military, veterans and their families. >> very much so. >> who served this country and make discussions like this and debates like we have been having the last couple weeks possible. >> i totally endorse that. but what do you make of this scandal? because it seems to get more ridiculous in some ways and yet possibly more serious the more we hear about it. >> well, it has as you've pointed out elemen
swing state we decreased obama's margin. i'm sure he went to sheldon edelson and to harold simmons and said put up these millions of dollars, and we can -- he'll win, but we'll decrease his margin. not much of a, not much of a relief, and maybe let's hope that, you know, i don't think cross roads is going to end up being as much of a player two years from now as it was right now. and and i think his reputation has, obviously, taken a hit. i'm ready for questions. >> let me ask you one or two, then we'll head around the table. the impact of the pacs. seeing sort of the limited impact it had for republicans, does it cause you to reassess the possible damage or the impact of citizens united? >> well, if you -- you know, i was thinking this morning, what is the greatest, my greatest surprise in the election was that the pacs had less of a impact tan i feared. and -- than i feared. and what i'd say here is i'm hopeful that maybe it can pave the way for some reform. i think republicans saw it was a mixed blessing both in terms of effectiveness, but sometimes, you know, the pacs, the supe
't learned anything. tonight, state senator nina turner on today's republican vote to defund planned parenthood. >>> good to have you with us tonight, folks. thanks for watching. absent of arrogance, president obama continued his fight for the middle class today and hit back at republican bullies in the process. the president held his first news conference since winning the presidency once again. it's the first time he's faced the news media without the worry or pressure of running for re-election. president obama is staying in constant communication with the american public, as he makes it clear the country cannot afford to extend the bush tax cuts for the wealthy. >> this shouldn't be a surprise to anybody. this was -- if there was one thing that everybody understood, it was a big difference between myself and mr. romney, it was when it comes to how we reduce our deficit, i argued for a balanced, responsible approach, and part of that included making sure that the wealthiest americans pay a little bit more. >> the president's plan, with this whole game, with all the cards out in th
list or perhaps the front oner for hillary clinton's job. now secretary of state. she has been relatively quiet during barack obama four years until lately. now i think all of our viewers know her because she went on all the sunday talk shows and told us everything that happened in benghazi was linked to this video which we know is not the case. can we ascend into the cabinet into this position in the cabinet given that? >> i think she would have a tough time in a confirmation hearing. a lot of the republicans and democrats have concerns about what happened in benghazi and the situation surround the attack on our consulate that resulted in four americans dying including our ambassador. her comments did not stand the test of credibility in the days after we learned more about what actually happened in benghazi. she has a lot of the questions to answer in a public hearing. john kerry has run for president. he ran to be commander-in-chief. his record has been scrutinize. susan rice does not have a great track record of public exposure of her performance in office and i think she w
of honor then the president of the united states. you received the medal of honor by president obama. what did he say to you when you were presented with it? >> that is a difficult question. i do not remember that so much. that he was proud of me and that the country was proud of me. one thing for me that that it, it is not for me. i've never been in a gunfight or battle alone. i've never been asked to do anything alone. we have always done it together. it is not about the individual. it is about the team and the person to the left and right of you. that at the white house thing with the president was something very special. to see my buddies that i fought alongside with receiving the accolades was something very special that validated what we were doing and that people did appreciate what was going on in the small pockets of the mountains in afghanistan. he told me he was proud of us. >> we have a very important election coming up in a few days. a few questions about the democratic process. i like to know your thoughts on the democratic process here in america. some people have to live un

it will be the united states, which switched its position during the obama administration from defending doma to arguing that it is unconstitutional. it has recommended to the court that it grants cert in the third case. -- windsor case. the windsor case from the court circuit andy gill case from the other circuit. the winsdor is mor likely because the justice apartment has recommended bridge of justice department has recommended. i would be surprised if the supreme court does not grant review in that case. and we do not get a decision on the constitutionality of doma. hee other two case -- t famous case is the prop eight case from california. that is from a ninth-circuit appeals decision, which by 201 vote struck down prop eight. the supreme court denied cert. the supreme court would be to affirm the ninth-circuit opinion and prop eight be unconstitutional. it is a big question with the court will do. their arguments are made that you do not have to review this case. it is about california. let it be. let the ninth-circuit decision stay in place. you do not have to take the case dice.l-- roll the i hav
much a purple state. i do not think it is definitely a democratic state. we have to see beyond obama because his candidacy and election were quite unique. to echo what you said about congress, i think we have to find leaders of both parties who are willing to bargain. at the obama's -- i think problem on that, he does not have the iou's to call in. he does not have a lot of arrow's a dent in his quiver to use. but we could use bob dole, those people that solved a long-range picture and not just today. >> excellent. speaking of long-range picture, few people can bring that to the party then the way richard norton smith chan. going back several hundred years. >> oh, gosh. [laughter] thank you. it is an honor to be on this panel. i have bought more than once in the storm surge of words that has washed over us over the last 10 days, there is a tendency, cable tv has 24 hours to fill, the internet has everything to fill. there is a tendency to over analyze. two years ago at this exact point, we were all being told that barack obama was in all likelihood a one-term president. we were talki
's homes. >> firm word from president obama. but president obama knows that any mandate he can claim after reelection is one focusing on domestic concerns. does he have the political capital to more deeply engage the united states in a seemingly never-ending conflict, possibly with no foreseeable end. at the table, rule a gentleman bril, chris hayes, my friend and host of "up with chris hayes" here on msnbc and jane eisner, the editor in chief of the jewish daily forward and mark quarterman, research director at the enough project. thank you all for being here. so this is -- as i was saying earlier this morning, this is going to be a pretty sober conversation. i want to be clear that sometimes the topics we take on, on mhp are my wheelhouse and the things that i sort of have my fundamental point to make. today i feel more like the audience in that i feel overwhelmed by this -- these developments. i feel distressed by them. i feel, chris, like we don't have necessarily even the common vocabulary to have a conversation about what is happening. as you sort of are observing this from your chai

really afford to do that? >> it's the united states and russia who have 90% of the world's arsenal of nuclear weapons do continue to make the deep cuts that started during reagan, that obama has built up, that president obama now in his next term could make with the russians, significant credible cuts in, then the rest of the nuclear states will join a process that will make it much more difficult for any other state to acquire weapons and for any state that has weapons not to join that process. we believe that is the only way, global zero believes that's the only way, to shift from our current course towards disaster to one which promises a more peaceful world. >> queen noor, great to have you here, valerie plame, you as well. the website is globalzero.com. appreciate it. thank you. >>> coming up, you're about to meet the people who are about to become u.s. citizens live on our plaza. into their work, their name on the door, and their heart into their community. small business saturday is a day to show our support. a day to shop at stores owned by our friends and neighbors. and do

the state department's chief economist and a former obama administration adviser on the auto bailout. this forum hosted by the world affairs councils of america, runs a little under an hour. >> thank you very much for that introduction. lori said to me that since we started a bit late, provided it's okay with her speakers we will run a little bit late, maybe five or 10 after 2:00. i'm going to ask them questions for about 40 minutes and then throw the floor open to you, so get your notebooks out in your questions and you can grill them in a moment. before starting, lori asked me to set set the frame a little bit and to talk just for a moment about u.s. competitiveness in the u.s. economy in a global context and there actually was an oecd report they came that came out this morning that does that admirably. this report submits that within four years, by 2016, the chinese economy will be bigger than the u.s. economy, and what the oecd report sort of further says, it's a great reporting appearances to take a look on line. today, the u.s. economy is accounting for 23% of the world's econ
previously. that's something that is of great concern to countries like the united states that view iran's nuclear activities with very deep suspicion, don. >> absolutely. speaking of the united states, the u.s. president barack obama said this week that he believed there was a, quote, window of time to peacefully resolve this with iran. but what are the implications now, matthew? >> well, i mean, the implications are that if iran were to make use of its new increased capacity to make nuclear material for weapons, and it hasn't said that it will do this, it said quite the opposite, in fact, that would mean that we have an opportunity that president obama was talking about would get narrower. at the moment, though, i think it is important to point out that iran is still staying well clear of the sort of line in the sand, the red line, that it would cross to provoke any kind of military response. it still doesn't have the kind of nuclear material or indeed the other technologies necessary to build a nuclear weapon, at least not for some significant time in the future, don. >> matthew chanc
he's been weak. my son was a huge obama supporter until obama ordered that american's death with the drone and then he lost my son. my son was so offended that a president could kill a united states citizen without a trial, without anything like that. and my belief, osama bin laden has to stop prosecuting whistleblowers the way he does, and he needs to go to state's rights. let me say this. hooray for colorado and washington who took the first huge substantial step in ending this idiotic war on drugs. the people voted to legalize recreational marijuana to treat it the same as alcohol, and that's going to create a dilemma for the federal government now and this will be a good thing to see if the federal government will back off and allow states to have state's rights when it comes to things like drugs, marijuana, and a lot of the decision making. >> jesse, you ended on a slightly positive note. >> i'm a positive person. what are you stag ard about? i'm very pleased, we had the gay rights issue in minnesota where they wanted to put on our constitution that marriage was between
, but if it was to happen, i would not care one bit. >> the post was part a barrage of racist references to president obama on social media following his re-election last week. republican tea party member alan westin is unwilling to can see defeat to patrick murphy, even though the state of florida says that he lost. election officials in one county are reportedly recounting some early votes. on friday, a florida judge denied a request to impound ballots and voting machines. the supreme court has announced it will hear challenges to a key provision on the landmark voting rights act of 1965. the case centers on a section of the law that requires many state and local governments with a history of discrimination to get federal approval before altering voting procedures. the money transfer company moneygram has agreed to establish a $100 million compensation fund as part of a settlement for a fraud allegations. the company is accused of processing transfers to agents who defrauded customers by posing as family members or offering cash prizes. the justice department said thousands of customers complained but th
states, the u.s. has also been targeting al qaeda. and in fact in december of 2009 the obama administration opened their campaign of bombing attacks against what they believed to be al qaeda targets in yemen. so on december 14, 2009, this is about -- obviously about 11 days before the christmas day attack, secretary of state clinton added al qaeda in the arabian peninsula to the terrorist list, named them an official terrorist organization, and then three days later the u.s. carried out its first attack. so it was in southern yemen and ibrahim mentioned this in his remarks. it was on a village and what the u.s. thought was that there was an al qaeda training camp and they knew some of the operatives who were there and so they had u.s. naval ships off the coast of yemen that fired missiles equipped with cluster bombs into what they believed to be a al qaeda training camp. unfortunately for the u.s., this turned out to be a bedouin village in which several or a few al qaeda members were hiding. there were 55 casualties during the first round i have a tax. so this happened sort
obama as president of the united states of america, and, you know, as a country, it was a remarkable time. it was a different election. in the midst of a financial crisis, a crisis -- i forgot my clock, otherwise i would go on for 45 minutes. [laughter] a financial crisis that really started here in the united states, but brought almost the entire global economy to its knees, and in the course of that election, and with president obama taking oches, we really -- office, we really, as a country, were at a cross roads where to go next with the system that was a broken status quo. go back as a country to the stable financial regulation, boring banking after the last major financial crisis, the great depression, boring, but effective, decade upon decade of financial stability that had orerred in remarkable era of growth for the country. unfortunately, broken down piece by piece leading up to the financial crisis. would we double down on the system? take those banks that were so large and so interconnected and so politically powerful that our leaderships decided that any one of which, if
of representatives, president obama won the electoral vote. pretty solid. he won the popular vote, which is decisive. he won eight out of nine of the battleground states that we were told they were so close, they could have gone to mitt romney. host: where the polls wrong? what is going on? -- were the polls wrong? what is going on? guest: every night on the news, what led the news. -- what led the news? the latest gallup poll. they have not been right since they were wrong in 1946. i must say, nate got it right on the blog. host: good morning. caller: i noticed throughout the campaigning that republican politicians have like complete contempt for the republican voter. mitt romney went to ohio and told a horrible, embarrassing lie. that tells me that they feel the republican voter is someone to be led by the nose, who can be manipulated, who can be fooled. is that what mitt romney did so poorly? host: thank you. guest: i do not think they were taking the republican voters for granted. i think they failed to reach beyond the republican base, the way i saw it. what mitt romney and paul ryan were doing
-elect president barack obama. millions of womens votes who helped us elect a record number of women to the united states. as you look forward, understand that you are looking into the future. the future of empowerment of women in america. you saw some of these faces yesterday. among the new members elect. i said then that they were part of the most diverse caucus in the history of the world, the first time the body would have a power with a majority of women and minorities as its strength and we're very, very proud of that. said yesterday we could not have the majority, but we have the gavel. excuse me. we don't have the gavel. we don't have -- we have our own gavel. we have something more important. we have unity. we do not have the gavel. we do not have the -- majority. but we have unity. i think our caucus this morning demonstrated that very clearly. so, i come here with my sisters when i came to congress 25 years ago, there were about 23 members of congress who were women. out of 435. just think of that. 11, 12 democrats, 11 republicans. something like that. today, we have over 60 house democ
over the weekend was thailand and late last night, president obama became the first bt to ever visit mee you mar. he met with the national league of democracy there along with secretary of state hilary clinton. he spoke with the president and said his trip is not an endorsement of the new government, which is in the middle of a transition to democracy, but he did praise the country for shaking off its military rule and press the government for more reform. obviously we're having a little bit of technical problems, but the president said the steps the president has taken for release of the prisoners and his commitment to work with the u.s. on human rights dialogue will unlease the incredible potential of that beautiful country. this is obama's first trip overseas since his reelection shows he is serious about shifting america's focus leastward. the two are continuing to fire rockets and israel has blamed hamas for does sends of arrests since the violence started. more "bill press show" after the break. we'll be right back. here in our own country. >> it's an iss

be confirmed of secretary of state if nominated by the approximate president? >> i don't know. i'm deferential to the president's picks. i voted for kagan and sotomayor. senator obama voted gaps john bolton, alito and john roberts. he had a very high bar for confirmation. i have a very low bar. i'm going to listen to what susan rice has to say, put her entire record in context. but i'm not going to give her a plus for passing on a narrative that was misleading to the american people, and whether she knew it was misleading or not. >> you won't filibuster her appointment? >> i'm going to wait to see what the state department has to say, but i'm very disappointed in susan rice, somebody who knew nothing about benghazi, telling a story that was disconnected from reality that did make the president look good at a time when quite frankly the narrative should have been challenged, not reinforced, that al qaeda was dismantled. that's what they wanted us to believe, that al qaeda was dismantled, and benghazi was exhibit a that that storyline was not working and was untrue. >> let me turn to the issue o
susan rice forward to be secretary of state. megyn: he said if i want to nominate her, i will. president obama scheduled to meet with business leaders. busy day at the white house, to talk about budget cuts and tax hikes. it's part of his plan to help avoid the fiscal cliff. but we got reports on two different studies, one by ernst and young and the conscious at budget office that predicted raising tax rates even on the wealthy will hurt the economy. charles payne and simon constable. author of the the "wall street journal" guide to the 50 economic indicators that matter. charlesing with who put that together, a bunch of rich people who don't want to get taxed? >> realistically. i think the question is, a lot of people will resign themselves to the fact that taxes will go up. but the question is how do you define rich. this is where i have a problem. $250,000 is not real definition of rich and that's not where the average american family who gets to that point should be punished for the work they put in. the president continues to dismiss small businesses saying only 3% are going to be h
, where a pretty fiery president obama ready to take off the gloves, if the republicans want to fight. the president clearly stating two key demands during his first news conference, ever since winning re-election. the first on taxes and the fiscal cliff. >> but what i'm not going to do is to extend bush tax cuts for the wealthiest 2% that we can't afford, and according to economists, will have the least positive impact on our economy. >> the president also making clear that he has susan rice's back. that's his ambassador, the embattled u.s. ambassador to the united nations. initially she said that that september 11th attack on the u.s. consulate in benghazi began as a spontaneous protest against an anti-islam film. well, now two top-ranking republicans are vowing to block her nomination if, in fact, she is picked to be the next secretary of state. that had the president very anger. here's what he said. >> if senator mccain and senator graham and others want to go after somebody, they should go after me. >> white house correspondent dan lothian is in washington, d.c., this morning. le
you say, "i don't mean a model for the nation, i met a model for the states could i did not mean the entire arizona law, i just met the e-verify portion," i did not trust you. latinos voted for obama because they did not trust romney on the immigration question, they did not like the rhetoric. there was no reason for this, because like i say, the majority of the american people want to see immigration reform. this is something very important, and it shows why politics has to do with immigration policy. i think the anti-immigration lobby has been very effective in creating the perception that the conservative base is anti- immigrants. that is just not true. poll after poll shows, study after study shows, that the majority of conservatives believe in border security but also believe in immigration reform. before the primary season we had -- we commissioned a study to study immigration views of likely republican primary voters. your tea partyers, people committed to the conservative movement. as long as you have border security there, the support legalization, a path to citizenship,
and a path to citizenship for immigrants already in the united states. our chief white house correspondent jessica yellin is with us from d.c. jessica, is the obama administration saying anything about the graham and schumer plan as it starts to formulate here? >> hey, ted. they haven't commented on the plan so far this week, but graham and schumer are re-engaging on a proposal that those two senators first outlined in march of 2010, and the white house supported that r proposal then. that proposal has four specific components, not just tightening the bord, but the key component is a biometrics social security card so only those here legally can be hired. that is sort of can considered the key linchpin that could get a lot of republicans on board. also a path to legalization, a process for admitting temporary workers. it sort of is considered a framework for a comprehensive plan that the white house said they very much would like to get done for the president in the second term. >> what about the timing? why now? why is this being brought up after the election? there is exit polling that s
of votes. [applause] millions of women's votes that it took to reelect president barack obama. [applause] millions of women's votes that helped us elect a record number of women to the congress of the united states. as you look forward, understand that you are looking into the future. the future of empowerment of women in america. we saw some of these faces yesterday among the new members elect. i said then that they were part of the most diverse caucus in the history of the world, the first time a parliamentary body would have a party who had a majority of women and minorities. we are very proud of that. we said yesterday, we did not have majority but we have the gavel. excuse me -- but we do not have the gavel. [laughter] we have something more important -- we have unity. we do not have the gavel. we do not have the majority. but we have unity. i think our caucus this morning demonstrates that very clearly. so i come here with my sisters -- when i came to congress 25 years ago there were 23 members of congress who were women out of 445. just think of that. 12 democrats, 11 republicans,
president obama defended u.n. ambassador susan rice who was criticized for her remarks immediately following this attack. she is reportedly in contention to succeed hillary clinton as our secretary of state, take a listen. >> if senator mccain and senator graham and others want to go after somebody, they should go after me. and i'm happy to have that discussion with them. but for them to go after the u.n. ambassador who had nothing to do with benghazi and was simply making a presentation based on intelligence that she had received, and to besmurch her reputation is outrageous. jenna: senator john cornyn of texas what's elected to be the senate's minority whip, a bit of a promotion if you will. thanks to have you back on the program. >> thank you, jenna, good to be with you. jenna: your reaction on what the president had to say yesterday in. >> i thought it was an overreaction to say the least. congress has a constitutional responsibility under our system of checks and balances to consider any nominations to an executive branch position, like secretary of state. the president knows that. i us
is still at it. the middle east is still a hot spot. thomas friedman writes today that for obama second term, i fear that it could be the full nightmare. all of them at once, the whole middle east corrupting in one giant sound and light show of civil war. states classing and refugees dislocating is the keystone of the entire region. syria, and the disorder spills across the neighborhood. joining us again, and fbi supervisory agent. you see that as late? >> what is happening in syria, you have to look at it from a few different perspectives. first you have the syrian people who want freedom from bashar al-assad's regime. then you have regional conflict that is going on. this is between iran and turkey. turkey is supporting the iranian people and iran is supporting the regime. you also have to look at it on a different level. where you have russia and china also involved on global levels with the syrian conflict. it is becoming a war of shadows and a war of different phones. the problem with that is that syria is a multicultural society. you have the christians and shiites and sunnis so i

to help him. president obama's committed to comprehensive immigration reform. i looked the other day, 90% of hispanics have parents or grandparents who immigrated to the united states from another country. that's why the republicans should be afraid. ther they should help us -- >> i don't think they have to be afraid. >> mitt romney talked about self-deportation, that turned off a lot of folks out there. >> i think self-deportation is what president obama did when he cratered the economy and kept it struggling. no jobs for people to come here to get. >> you can't exactly blame the president -- he inherited a pretty bad economy. >> he did. but he's also deported more illegal aliens than any president in american history. >> executive order came back. >> but democrats are winning the hispanic vote, why? it's not just tone. it's because of the approach you take. this is a country for everybody. not one group or another group. but this is a country for everybody. that's who the republican party has always been. we just need to remember who we are. >> didn't romney 'em base sb-1070? that also

states and africa afghanistan have begun negotiations on the status of forces agreement, or sofa, as required by the strategic partnership agreement that president obama and karzai signed in may. it will provide support for troops deployed after 2014. i would be interested in your thoughts on the importance of sofa to signal to the alabama and afghanistan's neighbors that the partnership will be -- to the taliban and neighbors that it will be a sign to stability and what you see as the u.s. redlines in sofa negotiations. we now call upon senator mccain. >> thank you, mr. chairman. let me thank our distinguished witness for his many years of impressive service in uniform. let me start by saying a word about general john allen, our commander in afghanistan. we had expected him to testify today on his confirmation to be supreme allied commander. while the committee await the conclusion of the inspector general investigation, i continue to believe that general allen is one of our best military leaders and i continue to have confidence in his ability to lead the war in afghanistan as
